Mothers Out Front California Senior Organizer, Linda Hutchins-Knowles, recently attended the CA Democratic Conference in San Francisco as an observer. When she ran into Governor Newsom in the lobby, she jumped on the chance to bring him a message from California mothers, saying:
"Thank you, Governor, for your strong words on climate. Mothers Out Front around the state now ask you to match your words with action. Please Stop, Drop & Roll for a livable climate for all children. We’re actually here collecting petitions asking you to do just that, and will deliver them to you soon. It’s our Last Chance!” Though non-committal, the Governor cheerfully posed for a photo.
We urge everyone to sign our petition to Governor Newsom and see why, along with hundreds of allies in the Last Chance Alliance, we’re asking him to Stop, Drop & Roll to address the public-health and climate emergencies. As the producer of much of the nation’s dirtiest oil—and the only oil-producing state without setback limits—it’s past time for California to make climate justice a top priority. Words are nice, but moms want to see action, now.
